st: Defining a matrix of Characters

Dear Stata-listers,

Could you kindly tell me if it is possible to define a matrix A[1x6] of characters as follows:

matrix A=[a b c d e f]

I tried going the long route as follows:

foreach i in a b c d e f { gen `i'= "`i'" } mkmat a b c d e f , matrix(A) varlist: a: string variable not allowed r(109);

I got an error message as you can see...

Thanks in advance.
